Fish Grooming and Other Funny Signs
Funny Sign Photos Taken by Mom and Me
This page was originally part of my Funny Signs and Bizarre Billboards gallery, but Mom has sent me so many funny sign pictures that I've had to create a new gallery for them.
There are funny church signs, unusual license plates and bumper stickers, and a lot of very strange shop signs. Some are meant to be funny on purpose; other signs are just plain weird.
Without further ado, I give you... Fish Grooming & Other Odd Signs.

Utah Has Funny Church Signs
Then Again, Funny Church Signs Are Everywhere...
Here's a special shout-out for the United Methodist Church of St. George. It seems they've decided that funny church signs are the best way to catch the attention of stray Mormons.

Utah Also Has Many Other Strange Signs
Next our Utah Golf Nut vanity plate:
Outside a local restaurant:
A cunning marketing ploy (think about it):
Cute sign in a diner:
Pet groomers and kennels tend to have quirky slogans and names:
An odd combination of things to be selling:
(It really is all one store -- they have the same thing painted on a van parked out front.)
And what gun owner doesn't want a transparent bra? (Yes, I know what they meant -- Mom didn't.)
Oh no! It's the end of civilization! With typos!

Just in case you weren't clear what metaphor they're using to sell cars...
This billboard appears right after the first.
I can't remember what kind of shop this was:
"No vacancy. Also, no hotel." (The hotel was torn down.)
Window decal on a truck...
I don't understand them; I just post them.
I feel so reassu ed by their competence.
I like their subtle disclaimer. ("It's not our fault; he made us do it!")

What IS It With This State? (And Why Does Mom Always Have a Camera?)
Mom just sent me the latest batch of funny signs from hip and happenin' Utah.
Truth in advertising! Wow.
Remember, this country invented marmite (made from real marmots).
Yet more truth in advertising.

Toys for Grown-Ups (I Hope)
Funny Novelty Items in a Store
Mom found these twisted toys at a check-out counter and surreptitiously snapped them.
They've got to be aimed at college students with their warped sense of humor, NOT children.
Oh no, it's real
This company puts out a lot of strange Archie McPhee style toys, catering to grown ups who haven't grown up. The narwahl and cheap fairies are gone, but the Avenging Unicorn is still for sale. There's also a CRAZY CAT LADY Action Figure and a bunch of other Miscellaneous Gag Gifts.

How Does Mom Keep Finding These Things?
Most of these are from Utah, except for the shark and weird house, which are in Houston.

I Rarely Have My Camera Handy for a Good Snap, But...
